FOREWORD 



HEREWITH I present to Southern Baptists my first 
volume of biographical sketches. In the compil- 
ing, editing and publishing of this work I have en- 
deavored to serve my beloved denomination to the 
best of my ability along the line of my talents. This 
has been a labor of love. 

For obvious reasons this work could not have been 
done officially by the denomination. 

This is an informational directory. It is in no sense 
discriminatory. It is not a publicity stunt. Names 
were suggested by a committee in each state of from 
three to five outstanding Baptists. Appreciation is 
hereby expressed for this service rendered. Names 
of committeemen are omitted, as most of them made 
this request. 

Every effort was made to secure all the sketches 
possible. No charge was made nor was any other 
financial obligation imposed for placing sketches in 
the book. Coming in has been purely voluntary. Some 
few refused. A number failed to reply after repeated 
requests for sketches. The vast majority responded 
promptly and enthusiastically. No sketch was turned 
down whether it had been requested or not. Literally 
hundreds wrote letters of commendation and encour- 
agement. 

I fully realize this volume is incomplete. Probably 
no book of its kind could be complete. There are thou- 
sands yet who ought to be included. I hope to cover 
many of them in a second volume shortly. 

No responsibility is assumed for the authenticity of 
the data given, although it is believed to be correct. 

If this volume is found generally helpful now for its 
informational content, and of value later for historical 



FOREWORD 



purposes, the year of hard labor consumed in its pro- 
duction will be considered an enduring investment in 
Kingdom work. 

Sincerely and fraternally, 




Compiler-Publisher.

CONTENTS 



S the names are alphabetically arranged, there is 
no need for an Index or Table of Contents. 

A word as to whose sketches are included in 
AMONG SOUTHERN BAPTISTS, Vol. I, 1936-37, may 
be in order. 

In this volume are the four hundred Foreign Mis- 
sionaries of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

All of the heads of the Southwide denominational 
agencies and institutions are listed. 

Herein are 100 per cent of the State Mission Secre- 
taries, and most of the Editors, Sunday School, Baptist 
Training Union, and Woman's Missionary Union Sec- 
retaries, Book Store Managers, College Presidents, 
Hospital Superintendents, Children's Home or Orphan- 
age Superintendents, Moderators of Associations, and 
Pastors of the larger churches of the South. 

Sketches will be found, also, of scores of individuals 
who do not come under any of the foregoing classifi- 
cations, including leading laymen and women. 

Therefore, it is believed that this initial effort is rep- 
resentative of the leadership and of a cross section of 
Southern Baptist Zion.
